COATC Men's Program Description
Central Oklahoma Adult & Teen Challenge provides an affordable one-year residential training program for men ages 18 and over with life-controlling problems, primarily in the areas of: drug and alcohol abuse, anger, depression, anxiety and abuse. While in the Adult & Teen Challenge program, each man will learn how to turn to God and be honest with himself. He will experience healing and learn to trust others again. We have designed a program to help break the cycles of failure, substance abuse and addiction by focusing on coping skills, social and relational skills and work ethics.
Our program includes:
Individual and Group Studies
Work Ethics Training
Work Therapy and Domestic Skills Training
Bible Study, Prayer and Chapel Services
The rewards of the program can include restored families, healthy relationships and becoming a hard-working, productive and successful member of society. Men can live free from the expectations of the "American culture" and become the man God designed THEM to be. Adult & Teen Challenge divides its ministry into four phases. Central Oklahoma is accredited by the national office to operate one or more of these phases.
Phase I: Induction Phase
It involves three / four months of Bible Study, Pastoral Counseling and character development. Individuals are provided opportunities to develop new habits and attitudes. Students graduate from this phase and go on to Phase II.
Phase II: Training Phase
Training Center: The individual is now prepared to start the nine-month training phase. The student continues to develop Christian growth by strengthening attitudes and habits in commitment, daily living, honesty, responsibility, and respect. Emphasis is placed on good work habits. Wholesome relationships with family and community are stressed.
Phase III: Re-entry Phase
Re-entry phase occurs in the final few months of the program. This phase often involves one or more of the following: housing search, personal and family counseling, assistance in finding suitable employment and church fellowship.
